Hey, BigDaddy.  No problemo if your rider has to leave -- I've got my leathers and helmet with me.  I'd be pleased to offer myself to ride the bike.  Seriously.  I'd love it.

And more important, ladies and gentlemen, I've got the Jetpack wi-fi thingie going again.  After some time with Verizon tech support (Katie, a young lady that sounded like American was her native language and didn't make me feel like a dumb jerk.  Thanks, Verizon and Katie) we decided that since it wouldn't reset when I pushed the reset button - to go to the very basic way to reset it.  I opened it and took the battery out for a few minutes.  Put the battery back in and -- viola!  It's working just fine.  In fact -- it had gone into limp mode before quitting altogether, going from a nice fast 4G down to a slow 3G status.  When it came back up a little while ago it's at the 4G again.  Wah-hoo, it's all good again.  Good thing, too -- my iPhone's monthly data limit is approaching fast and I don't know how to reset that from the phone.  Worse -- I don't remember the password to get me into my account so I can't change the data allowance.  I'll get billed at a stingingly high rate if I exceed without upping it before I hit 100%.

But anyway, back to the Top Speed Challenge for tomorrow/Sunday.  Start time has been decided to be at 9AM Wendover time.  I'm expecting that to be defined as 9AM racer time, which means it might be at nine, it might be at ten thirty, but sooner or later we'll get back to racing. 

The Ack Attack bike is in the transporter carrier at the start line and Mike says he's got the bike ready for Rocky to get on it hard first thing in the morning.  Today's run was aborted by pulling the chute a bit before Rocky got into the timed mile, and the rumor that I heard (and remember, this is a rumor not heard from anyone on the Ack team so I can't vouch for the veracity of it) is that it wasn't shifting both transmissions correctly.  He was moving at good speed before the problem occurred, too.  Bummer -- but there's always tomorrow.

Deep enough for tonight.  It's a bit past 9PM out here and I haven't eaten supper.  I think I'll go to that world famous restaurant a mile or so from here.  You know it -- the Burger le Roi.  See you tomorrow.

Well -- it's morning at the Bonneville Salt Flats.  I think I've got the audio going - and Rocky is about to run.  Turn on your audio and enjoy the run.  I'll fill you in later on.


Rocky is under way from the zero.  

Chute out at the 4 1/2.   Slowing in the timed mile.

Simon & Garfunkels "The Sounds of Silence" has been replaced by keyboard slamming.

I'm soooo happy.

The next vehicle to run will be the Big Red Camaro, wearing a number1.  It's going to run only to the 2 so we won't hear or see it.  Just letting you know.

The Ack bike had some tuning hassles with the MoTeC yesterday and this morning.  Ian Mann from the SD team joined the party with Mike A. and Ken Puccio, Ack crew chief, and they sorted it out a bit and left the tuneup about 10% fat - - nice and safe.  No idea why Rocky pulled the chute at the 4 1/2.

Dennis Mariani says they'll make a pass this morning starting from the 2 or so so the car will go through the lights -- they'll get a speed.  I'm thinking that this event is being used as a test and tune -- agree?

Next vehicle will be the #22 Mariani C/GS 'liner.  He'll start at the two and run down here and through the lights to get a speed. I don't think it'll be a WFO run -- but oughta be fast enough grin.

The engine is running.

The car is under way.  Running from the 2 to the six.

Chute out before the three.  No speed data this time, either.  I don't know who's going to be next up.

The course is now unlocked.  Will advise when I hear anything.  Junior is heading to the pits to see if anyone is close to ready or has plans about when they'd run.

Now -- the donation story.  I mentioned this on the audio stream.  I've got a good supply of '14 Salt Talks t-shirts remaining and will be glad to send one (or more) to you.  The cost is $20 plus $6 shipping (US postal service) each.  If you want a shirt or two -- please make a donation of at least $26.  Using the Paypal button is easy, but you're also welcome to send it via mail to landracing.com, 509 Dukes Road, Skandia Michigan 49885.  Checks are fine -- as long as there's some money in your account evil.  Please:  when you send the donation I need to have your mailing address included, and also the size shirt you want.

I'll be shipping them once I'm back at home later on this week -- probably no sooner than Saturday.  Remember -- Minimum $26, your mailing address, your chosen shirt size.  Thanks.

reading the notes here and on Facebook is confusing me....

I was told at the salt, there will be a 5 mile track with a 4 mile slow down...and a 132 feet timing....

now I'm reading that they time the speed over the mile - like the electric sidecar - and they run for license....

How this....is this now a other meet as they said on Wednesday?HuhHuhHuhHuhHuh??with different time light set up???

Has the stream died again?

I was in the next room fixing brunch, and the noise stopped.
So we rebooted both modem and laptop; still crickets.

Now 11

If somebody was asking for C&W; KRCL features bluegrass and some country most of the PM on Sundays.
